Justin-PA Posted May 8, 2022 Report Share Posted May 8, 2022 Hello! New to this forum. I live in southeastern Pennsylvania and have a Windmill Palms planted in the ground (4-5 years old). In the winter, I tie up the fronds, wrap lower trunk in burlap, add lots of mulch and put a frost cover over it. We had a 80 degree day in early March, and I got overly excited and took the cover off the larger of the two. A week later, a winter squall came in, and within an hour bent many of the fronds. Immediately, I went outside, retied fronds up, put frost cover on top, and put a space heater on it for several hours. The tree is still looking healthy, but many of the fronds are still bent. I have wrapped some string to hold the fronds up for now, but wondering if anyone knows if they will eventually heal and I can take the string off? Any reason to remove these fronds? They are still very green. See photos below. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
